I never did read the Dan Brown books and solely went to see this moviewith the previous two movies as background. What a disappointment!<br><br>The movie starts with Robert Langdon having flashbacks and weirdvisions. By itself nothing out of the ordinary weren't it for thetedious assembly. In stead of getting people invested in what ishappening with the professor, you just get white flashes alternatedwith some scenes that do intrigue until they give those again a genericfilter you can even make yourself in Windows Movie Maker.<br><br>When the movie eventually gets into the story it's rushing from oneplace to the next. If this was an ordinary action movie that would beacceptable, but absolutely not in a Dan Brown movie. The attractivepart of Langdon is the puzzle solving, the adventure, the mysteries.Not someone who says:"Let's go trough this door. I know it is therebecause I read it in a book."<br><br>The ending is the worst of the whole movie. Again, a lot of action, butthat is not what the Dan Brown-series is about. I heard that in thebook the ending is totally different and I really wonder why theychanged it, but this is a review of a movie and not from the book. So,I have to give the ending the fame of one of the worst endings of 2016for me. No puzzle, no big reveal, just some action.<br><br>Overall if you like Langdon and you wished for something like Angels &Demons without the riddles and with even more action than you are atthe right place, but that's absolutely not what I wanted or expectedfrom this movie. I wish I could go back to the static, immersiveLangdon from The Da Vinci Code who paused here and there and where thehistory and the characters intrigued him and me.
